Stayed in apartment - only way to guarantee a parking spot. Compared to many of Hobarts over-priced and over-rated motels it isn't too bad. Rooms were a bit musty, but roomy and plenty of light. We stayed here as it was close to the Casino for a show we were seeing.

If you smoke then this is the place for you, if you can not tolerate the constant smell of cigarette smoke wafting into your room then avoid this place like the plague. If you can sleep through the cigarette smoke then you may be woken by the conversations of the smokers and your neighbours going about there business in the... More

We loved staying here as this motel is close to all conveniences! I rate it 3 star but the value for money is 5-star. We stayed here for 6 days during the Hobart regatta and loved it. Room 5 is downstairs without a view but as we had mobility scooters we did without the view. If you want the view... More

Stayed here four nights during the Wooden Boat Festival. Booked early, last August, because of close proximilty to the centre. When we arrived, I was shocked. If Hobart was not overbooked for this period, I would move somewhere else straight away. The room (and apparently the whole ground fllow) has not been renovated since the day the motel was built...

Although decor is a bit tired, rooms were good size. We used electric fan, which worked fine. Bathroom and kitchen ok. We were out most of time,... More

We really wanted to like this place. We booked early for the summer period and the reviews at the time were ( mostly) positive. It is walking distance to Battery point and Salamanca place, and the price was good compared to other one bedroom apartments in the area. There is a reason for that. To start the apartment was tired,... More

We booked a night at the Hotel on the phone months in advance. When we arrived on an extremely busy weekend there was no booking to be found. Because we had no proof in the form of a confirmation email or a booking.com reference we were told it was our fault and we would need to go elsewhere. The office... More

We stayed 1 night in November 2014 and it was a disaster. Our room was not ready when we arrived at 3.30 & we sat in our car for 30 mins waiting for the room to be 'cleaned'. The room was overpriced and tacky. The bathroom had mold in the corners and around the toilet. The shower recess had lots... More
